You'll also cover the rise and growth of AI, especially as it affects Alphabet and Google's products and business, and topics like voice interfaces.

Requirements:

  • At least some journalism experience.
  • The ability to deliver clean, accurate copy on deadline.
  • An interest in obsessively covering Google, Alphabet, and the rise of artificial intelligence.
  • Attention to detail in reporting, analysis, and writing.
  • The ability to work mostly independently, with support and input from editors and colleagues.
  • A creative, collaborative spirit, comfort trying new ideas, knowing some won’t work.
  • The ability to work from our San Francisco office most days.
  • Some evening and weekend work.

Bonus points for specific experience covering Google or the technology industry, or coding experience.

To apply, please submit a resume, cover letter, samples of your work, and a link to an online presence — blog, podcast, Twitter stream, etc. — that you’re proud of.
